    Basically I want to spend anywhere from $100 - $500 on my GF's graduation gift this May, and I know that she wants a Tablet attachment so she can draw and not have to scan in her inked sketches. I have found a few places that have tablets, but I don't know enough about them to tell which one I should get.

    It's the Intuos3 12x12 USB Tablet with a FREE Software Suite. I like the size and at $469.95, it is right at the top of my budget. What can you guys tell me about this?

    That is the Intuos3 12x19 USB Tablet. I can't imaging needing that big of a tablet, but I thought I would post it.

    That looks kind of neat, and its a good medium size unit.

    This is the one that I am leaning towards at the moment. It is the Intuos3 9x12 USB Tablet that is priced at $389.95.

    This one I am not sure how good it would be for artwork. It's the Graphire4 6x8 Tablet and it is at a decent size and it's priced at a mere $162.95.

    This one is very tempting as its size and price make it look like the perfect deal, but I am a little weary of it. a CyberTablet 12000 12x9 USB Graphics Tablet with Photoshop Elements at a mere $154.95 makes me suspicious about how good it can be.


    So can anyone help me out here?

    I know nothing about those particular ones, but I know people who use Wacom tablets, and have nothing but praise for them.

    Wacom's tablets are the best. Their Intuos brand is the higher end tablet, though the big difference between that and their Graphire line is merely the sensitivity. The Graphire has 128 levels of pressure, the Intuos has 256.
